Mangiferaindica, commonly used herb in ayurvedic medicine. Although review articles on this plant are already published, but this review article is presented to compile all the updated information on its phytochemical and pharmacological activities, which were performed widely by different methods. Studies indicate mango possesses antidiabetic, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, cardiotonic, hypotensive, anti-inflammatory properties.
Aim: The aim of the study is to find the Invitroantiinflamtory activity of magniferaIndica peels
Method : The reaction mixture consisted of test extract at different concentrations and 1% aqueous solution of bovine albumin fraction. pH of the reaction mixture was adjusted using small amount of 1N HCl. The samples were incubated at 37oC for 20 min and then heated at 57oC for 20 min. After cooling the samples, the turbidity was measured spectrophotometrically at 660 nm.
The experiment was performed in triplicate
Result: Denaturation of proteins is a well‐documented cause of inflammation. As a part of the investigation on the mechanism of the anti‐inflammatory activity, ability of extract to inhibit protein denaturation was studied.
